This morning we started off with our normal morning jump. The crew said the water was super warm before we jumped in but the second we hit it, we knew it was a lie. We played keep away and starboard won. Starboard tested out the salinity, temperature, and visibility of the surface sea water, while Port set up for breakfast. For breakfast we had bagels, muffins and cereal. The muffins were delicious! The cook ran out of muffin pans, so…

The morning started with a wake up call, calisthenics, and a morning dip. We played a game of “Keep Away” and Port Watch won. Starboard Watch participated in a water quality sampling test. Breakfast consisted of pancakes and orange juice. The pancakes were great. Thank you Christian! After breakfast and clean up we went to the UMASS Dartmouth’s Marine Science Center. Kate, a graduate student, gave a presentation about AUVs and ROVs. We also got to examine a few tanks…

Today we got up at 6:00 a.m. and we did jumping jacks and push-ups. Then we jumped into the water and played a game of Keep Away. Starboard watch won the game in the final moments and won a point for their team. For breakfast we ate cereal, bagels, muffins and then did our chores and cleaned up. We all got ready to go to Woods Hole in the rain. We went to Pie In The Sky where we got…

July 10, 2017 Today we arrived at Tabor and met our fellow classmates. We put our bags on the Hoyt dock and waited for everyone to arrive. As our parents toured the vessel, we began to get to know each other with ice breakers such as blobs and lines and the human knot and then we said our goodbyes. Afterwards, we loaded onto the launch and began to make our way through the Sippican Harbor to the Tabor Boy. We…

As usual we woke up at 6:00 a.m. and put our bathing suits right on. We were told that the water in Cuttyhunk was really warm due to the Gulf Stream moving warm water up there. However, it was a lie told by the crew so we would jump in to the freezing cold water. We played the morning game of Waboba and Port came out with the victory. At 7:00 a.m. we had a delicious breakfast of four different…

We woke up in Fairhaven Shipyard, at 6:00 a.m. We didn’t have our morning dip. We left Fairhaven through New Bedford Harbor and anchored in Clark’s Cove. After breakfast, we tested the water and were taken ashore to visit the UMass Marine Science Center. We learned about AUVs, ROVs, and about how they are used to study the water temperature, salinity, density, and weather patterns. We saw smooth dogfish, coral reef organisms, and a cold water touch tank. We met…
